ADTRAN’s (ADTN) ALM Solution Boosts SUNET’s Infrastructure

Must read

ADTRAN Inc. ADTN recently announced that the Swedish University Computer Network (“SUNET”) is leveraging its Advanced Link Monitoring (ALM) in-service fiber monitoring solution to bolster network reliability and functional efficiency.

The cutting-edge technology provides SUNET’s maintenance teams with insights in real-time into the quality of its extensive nationwide backbone infrastructure, pointing out the exact location of any fiber-related issues.

The installation of ADTN’s 16-port ALM fiber assurance solution across SUNET’s expansive 8,000km fiber backbone network empowers the swift identification of troubles with enhanced network resilience. This advantage is significant for a user community engaged in data-intensive scientific research endeavors.

Furthermore, the ALM technology facilitates “proactive” maintenance. SUNET uses ALM (through an intuitive graphical user interface) to oversee a vast national infrastructure comprising RAMAN-amplified optical links. This platform identifies abnormalities such as fiber breaks, attenuation variations, tapping attempts and other issues that could potentially disrupt connection quality and service availability, thus securing SUNET’s network robustness.

As the backbone of Sweden’s R&E network, SUNET plays a pivotal role in enabling academia and scientific communities to access knowledge materials, conduct research and foster international collaborations. The integration of ADTN’s ALM solution enhances the level of assurance for seamless, high-quality services within the Nordics’ R&E ecosystem.

SUNET is said to connect more than 110 organizations and caters to a community of 750,000 students, teachers and researchers across Sweden and beyond. The deployment of ADTN’s ALM platform with its passive fiber monitoring capabilities has strengthened this critical infrastructure, rendered trusted services and simplified operational processes, added ADTN.

Based in Huntsville, AL, ADTRAN is one of the leading provider of innovative solutions and services that facilitate voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of global network infrastructure. The company has a diverse global customer base that includes Tier 1, 2 and 3 service providers, alternative service providers such as utilities, municipalities, cable/multiple-system operators, Small and Medium Businesses and distributed enterprises.

In the last reported quarter, ADTN’s revenues fell 28.6% year over year to $226.1 million due to sluggish demand trends across the network solutions business. The top line beat the consensus estimate of $223 million. The expansion of the Mosaic One platform reportedly boosted its customer base.

The stock has lost 37.5% in the past year against the industry‘s growth of 52.5%.
